What to Consider About Memory Care in Plainview

Nearly one-fifth of Plainview's 26,000 residents are at least 65 years of age or older.  The Plainview area offers 10 memory care facilities to assist those in the community with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. The New York State Department of Health regulates these memory care facilities throughout the state, which are known as Adult Care Facilities (ACFs).

Because 400,000 people aged 65 and older have Alzheimer’s disease in New York, memory care facilities across the state, like those in Plainview, have implemented the state's EDGE program that offers extra tools and instruction to staff members working in dementia care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Plainview

 

  • A senior has a one in 120 chance of being a victim of crime in Plainview compared to the national average of one in 36. With only eight crimes per 1,000 citizens, Plainview's crime rates are considered lower than 64 percent of all other communities throughout New York. Such low crime rates might suggest Plainview is one of the safer cities for memory care throughout the United States.
  • The Plainview area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Plainview Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Plainview experiences a varied climate, with warm summers and cold winters. Temperatures range from a high of 84 degrees in July to a low of 25 degrees in January. When visiting various memory care facilities, seniors or relatives might wish to ensure the community takes care to keep its residents out of the heat or cold.  
  • Compared to the national average cost of living of 100, the overall cost of living in Plainview is 188. Transportation costs, which often affect families and seniors in memory care, are nearly double the national average. Seniors or family members of elderly loved ones with dementia seeking memory care on a budget might not choose Plainview because of its high cost of living.
